However the intensity and level of discolouration can be reduced with teeth whitening options. Here at Peninsula Dental we offer In Office or Take Home Treatment options.
Tooth discolouration is categorised as two types, intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic stains take place within the internal structure of your tooth and can occur as a result of excessive fluoride, certain antibiotics or trauma to the teeth while it’s still developing. Extrinsic stains occur on the enamel of your tooth (otherwise known as the external layer) and are caused by foods, drinks (such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, red wine) and tobacco.
